A new restaurant in homage of America’s greatest cities is headed to The Maxwell in Alpharetta. City Eats Kitchen, a new concept from hospitality expert Brent Seyler and Johnny Esposito, who owns the PONKO Chicken outposts in Decatur and Midtown, City Eats Kitchen will showcase food from New York, Miami, Chicago, Boston, St. Louis, and more in an upbeat space complete with a full bar and live music.
The space, at 174 Devore Road in Alpharetta, will have both indoor and outdoor seating. The patio is equipped to fit up to three hundred people, and will be used for live music and other events.
Inside, there’s a platform that the restaurant will use for seating and as a stage on weekends. Esposito also has a video wall in the works, in which he’ll live-stream street corners from all the cities featured on his restaurant’s menu.
As for food and drink, think: lobster rolls in honor of New England, cheesesteaks reminiscent of Philly, cuban sandwiches that take you straight to Miami. The bar, while whiskey-centric, will offer handcrafted cocktails that pair with the food.
All in all, City Eats Kitchen is shaping up to be a pretty fun spot, and expects to open Fall 2021. We’ll head there for a burger on whatever night the Journey tribute band is performing. What’s more American than that?
